SOCIAL media users have trolled Hillary Clinton on her birthday ahead of Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court confirmation vote.
The former Secretary of State shares her 73rd birthday with the confirmation of the attorney.
Several trolls took to Twitter to "wish" Clinton a happy birthday while quipping about Barrett's appointment.
"Happy Birthday, @HillaryClinton. Hope you're as happy as we are with the GLORIOUS #ACB vote tonight," AmericaFirst host Sebastian Gorka wrote.
Another user, Dinesh D-Souza, said: "It was very nice of @realDonaldTrump to give her Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court as a birthday present!"
A member of the Team Trump advisory board, Jessie Jane Duff, said that there is "no greater gift to America" than Barrett's confirmation.
"On Hillary Clinton's birthday, we will celebrate an amazing day as President Trump's third Supreme Court Justice is confirmed," she wrote.
Clinton took the opportunity on her birthday to ask Americans to vote for the Democrats in the upcoming election.
The former presidential hopeful posted a photograph of herself from her school days with the caption: "It's my birthday.
"Here's my one wish: that you reach out to one person in your life who may not vote this year and encourage them to turn out for Biden-Harris. All of us have more power than we know."
She later went on to describe her disagreement with Barrett's confirmation.
"It is an insult to the American people that the GOP is ramming through a Supreme Court justice with just eight days until the end of an election in which nearly 60 million people have already voted," she wrote.
Barrett’s confirmation on Monday was hardly in doubt, with majority Republicans mostly united in support behind President Donald Trump’s pick.
But Democrats were poised to keep the Senate in session into the night in attempts to stall, arguing that the November 3 election winner should choose the nominee to fill the vacancy left by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Republicans are excited by the chance to install a third Trump justice on the court, locking in a conservative majority for years to come.
Barrett’s ascent opens up a potential new era of rulings on abortion, gay marriage and the Affordable Care Act. A case against the Obama-era health law scheduled to be heard November 10.
“The Senate is doing the right thing,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, vowing to install Barrett to the court by Monday.
